About Me

My photo
Perth, Perthshire, United Kingdom
Welcome to my little corner of the World! I live in Perthshire Scotland with my wonderful husband Eric. We have a daughter, Corinne who is married to Rob and lives in New Zealand, with their boys Harrison and twins Hadley and Dylan. Marie who has a wee boy Jackson, and Greg and his wife Kim, their wee girl Freya, even smaller baby boy Freddie and dog Buddy. I am happy when I am in my craft room, and I love making cards for Charity and also for commissions. I love scrapbooking, and I get my inspiration from my Grandchildren. They are the subjects in most of my Scrapbooking layouts. I have just started to do Mixed Media work, and I am loving it!! I have just started a craft group at our local Church centre, aptly called Saints and Scissors Club! If you can't find me, I will be in my craft room, buried under tons of stash lol!

Scrapbook Magazine Design Team

I received wonderful news recently, when I was asked to be on the design team for Scrapbook Magazine.  I was so excited and I squealed and squealed and couldn't wait to tell my family!!  I had to submit 4 layouts for their "Meet the Design Team" feature and here are the layouts I selected for them. I have had to wait until the Magazine was out in the shops before I could share my news with you.
This one shows Dylan helping his Daddy to mow the lawn.I love the way that he really looks as if he is working hard, and his dirty wee face is so cute!
 This layout shows Jackson in his baby bath, before he moved to the big bath. He loves to splash and you can see the water he is splashing up in the air, and he is not the slightest bit afraid.

This layout shows my husband Eric, when we were on holiday in Egypt. He got speaking to one of the locals, and he offered to take him out into the desert on a quad bike. He had an amazing time, and they we right off the beaten track away from all the touristy stuff.
Lastly, this layout shows my Mum in photos taken around 60 years ago  I thought it unusual that 2 of them were taken when my mum was walking down a busy street.  In the 2nd one, my Granny is in the background. unfortunately, I don't know where they were taken, which is a shame, as it would have been lovely to put that information on the layout.

Well, there you go, my exciting news.  I can't wait to see what they have lined up for me and will share my layouts with you once they have appeared in the magazine.

Enjoy Every Moment

The theme over at Mo's Challenge is "Something Sweet".  This makes it quite easy, as ll Mo's images are sweet! The difficult thing is deciding which one to choose! LOL! I have settled for this wee image called So Funny.  She is  having a fit of the giggles and her wee dog giving her such a look! I love it!!
I used papers from Nitwits which were free from a magazine.  Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and tied them together with pink ribbon.  Lastly I added some card candy which again was free!  Off to do some scrapping now, have a layout on my desk which just needs to be all stuck down.  Back soon!

Freebie Stamp

I have been so so busy recently and have not had the time to blog. Hopefully I will get more time now and I can get some posting done!  I used my spellbinders die to cut out the sandcastle, bucket & spade, shells and starfish.

This was a freebie digi stamp from Crafty Sentiments and I was going to enter this card in their challenge, but I have missed the deadline! Never mind, maybe the next time! LOL!!

This is a card using a stamp from Prairie Fairy.  I love her cute images, they are so cheeky!  Even the dog has a cheeky face!
I'm off now to try and do more crafting - I'll be back soon!!
